In a recently released report the United Kingdom has said that while the Sri Lankan government has made progress in rehabilitation and reintegration of former LTTE members back into society and in post-conflict reconstruction and resettlement of the displaced, human rights remained a serious concern.

The Human Rights and Democracy: 2011 Foreign & Commonwealth Report released by British Foreign Secretary William Hague in the British parliament stated that significant progress was still needed to address the institutional weaknesses that allow for frequent human rights violations.

Describing the human rights picture in Sri Lanka in 2011 as mixed, the report said terrorist suspects continued to be held without charge for long periods.

The report which is a comprehensive look at the human rights work of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office around the world in 2011 highlights the UK's human rights concerns in 28 key countries and the Sri Lanka is one of the concerned countries.
